Notice to all

Notice to all [/b] I tried to do my best to get this project moving forward. I contacted Andrew in public and private to convince him to let me test my idea of a proper CLI database. I tried to cut my requests to the very basic I can do with . I can't seem to get him to let me even try. Not with po...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

I'd say youtube-dl, pandoc, pdftk, exiftool, mtr etc shouldn't have a label, and only stuff like WinMove (Yori) or Convert.exe (ImageMagick) should have one, as labels there would have a signal function: gotta pay attention here. youtube-dl just works out of the box, WinMove requires additional wor...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

@lintalist Interesting take. I view "tool" as the basic unit. Thus, a "package" would need the label. If we reverse it like you say (everything is a downloadable unit/package unless labelled otherwise), how would you do it? It is hard to do in negative. What would label be like? "not package"? 🤔 So ...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

Just some thoughts: Not sure about the "package" - wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_package - states "... that provides certain functionality as part of a larger system" and I think that rings more true - when I think of package, I think of additional "things" I can install to make ...

Re: Midnight Commander for Windows

Thanks, Lintalist! You might wanna use the new thread "TUI File Managers" as a central point for CLI/TUI file managers!

👍

I am sure a scoring query can be optimized significantly, though.

I run into a problem with Firefox.
A thread on the topic: Customizing Firefox
Didn't do it for me since I need to keep two different full portable "installs". :|

Is there a way, John?

Re: Site usability testing results

You can try something like: WITH scoretable ( st_score, st_id, st_title, st_description, st_keywords, etc ) AS ( SELECT 10, id, title, description, keywords, etc FROM mytable WHERE title LIKE "%searchterm%" UNION ALL SELECT 3, id, title, description, keywords, etc FROM mytable WHERE description LIKE...

Re: 16-bit apps in the CLI database?

Would you oppose it? My main concern here is to avoid repeating the same "heads up" for unaware readers about has the nature and requirements of 16-bit apps. For example, here and here . This way, with very little effort, we can have a subforum with a clear title "16-bit/MS-DOS CLI Tools" and FAQ wh...

I tried the archive, but found that often the downloads weren't working so I went with softpedia for Nanogg

Re: TUI File Managers

- Added lf.
- nnn dev seems to have something against Windows.
- ranger is python, which has a centralized repo (see this post), so I am not keen on navigating that ocean. I think we can include python apps that have a compiled executable.
- It seems rover is not for Windows.

Re: 16-bit apps in the CLI database?

@ lintalist @ Cornflower Thanks for the input. I just want to clarify that we talking about two related (but different) things (I realize I wasn't very clear): Do we include them in the database at all? Do we make a subforum for 16-bit CLI (to avoid confusion with 32/64-bit CLI that work out-of-the-...
